We checked into this place because I mistakenly believed it was in walking distance from Cannery Row, but it is in fact about 2.5 miles. This means you will want to take a taxi, or still pay to park like everyone else. But none of this is my main gripe. We paid a lot for this room for one night, but what did we get? The room was a little cozy, but small, […] and contained no fridge or table when we needed it. The only real fancy thing about this place was the lobby. Next time we can stay at nearby Seaside for less than half the price, and then swoop in and park where everyone else does. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Casa Munras Hotel & Spa Thank you for your review. We are disappointed to hear about the confusion regarding our location. Our company, the Inns of Monterey, does have a collection of properties in Monterey and three of them are conveniently located on or near Cannery Row. If your travels bring you back to Monterey we would be happy to have you as our guest at one of these properties. In regards to our rooms, some of our room types do offer mini fridges in them while others do not. However, our front desk will gladly accommodate our guest requests for a fridge, as we understand some of our guest needs are different than others. Beginning in October we will begin guest room renovations, which we are very excited to begin. The scope of the renovation plan for the guest rooms will include upgrades to the plumbing and electrical systems, and significant upgrades to the insulation in the walls, ceiling, floors and windows. Thank you again for your feedback and comments, we truly believe that they are vital for our continued improvement. Sincerely, Management of the Inns of Monterey
"Very convenient and comfortable"
Only negative was we wished the shower water could have been a little hotter.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
excellent location. Outstanding café across street. Restaurant hotel breakfast good value.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Motel conversion just okay."
So the photos are accurate but the place isn't quite as nice as it might seem. My room was very small and very 3 three start. Notably good food at the restaurant, which is Spanish themed with tapas. My stay was somewhat marred by the absence of airconditionining on a hot night, but that probably only happens a couple nights a year in Monterey.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to so much! Walk ability!"
What a nice, clean hotel. Location so good, easy walk to restaurants and Fisherman's Wharf, and Alvarado street. Reasonable rates. I will definitely stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient location, pleasant stay"
The hotel's mission style architecture and the colorful landscaping was pleasing and relaxing. The staff was friendly and helpful. We had a deluxe king room with fireplace. It was nice, large, quiet, and clean. Unfortunately, our stay was during an unseasonable heat spell, so the fireplace was not only superfluous but detrimental because the pilot light […] kept the room too warm and the air conditioner seemed not to work. The ceiling fan was much appreciated during the night, but we were still too warm. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very nice hotel"
We stayed here on a business trip. My husband had a meeting and I wanted to stay near Fisherman's Wharf. The room was nice, I asked for a queen size bed but I think it was a full size. We were comfortable and the staff was very friendly and helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good stay for a reasonable price."
Beds were extremely comfortable, very satisfied with the mattress. The bathroom fan did not work, but the front desk was nice about it and said they would have maintenance check it right away. TV's are in serious need of an update. The hotel was cute and would stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed two days Bob the check in guy was perfect very helpfull ! The room was ok I'm just pickie I guess when u pay over $150 a night I expect more there was some broken items in room and could use a touch up here and there all in all it was ok !

My best friend and I were attending a wedding in Pebble Beach and the location was ideal. The day after the wedding, we biked to the Monterey Aquarium, which is a short 1.5 miles away. Moreover, every person (the house cleaners, the front desk staff, the manager and the concierge) was very, very nice! My only critique would be the bathrooms in the room. […] They were clean, but needed updating. Other than that, I had a very positive experience and the grounds were beautiful (the pictures don't do the hotel justice).

"Rich in History"
I loved the historical background of this hotel. It was beautiful and tastefully designed.Genuine Expedia guest review
I read all of the reviews on yelp for this hotel and agree with all the good and bad. The room was what one would expect an normal room size, it was billed as a suite. The motel does not have air conditioning in the rooms and the rooms do not have ceiling fans; that means no air circulation. The windows are the only ventilation but you need to have […] the plantation shudders need to be closed so that people cannot see into the room and you have to close the windows when you leave. Asking for a fan helped a lot. We were on the first floor and the walls are on the thinner side and when our upstairs person did anything with the pipes ours made the most horrible noise. It is an older motel that needs a facelift but the fireplace in the room was really nice. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The Hotel appears more modern in pictures. Staff is friendly and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
You will not be disappointedGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice place in a decent location. Appears to be a mix of newer/recent redone buildings and older buildings. Our room was nice, but on the small side and from the condition appeared to be in an older portion of the hotel. Bathroom did not have true windows, just some kind of sliding translucent thing. Works in the Monterey weather, but means every noise […] in your room carries outside unless you close the bathroom door. Would probably stay there again but would need a similar discount to the one received on this trip. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cozy means small."
The photo and description of the 'hotel and spa' made it look and sound much better than it was. Only was able to stay one night because of an unexpected need to change itinerary, so perhaps I didn't have the time to see and experience more. The property was quite 'experienced' and it was explained about the history. The work done to update my cozy […] cabin was OK and it was clean. No place to relax or use computer but on bed. Noisy neighbors. Staff was very professional and yet friendly. Restuarant had restrictive menu and was somewhat expensive. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by Casa Munras Hotel & Spa Thank you for your review and for the lovely compliments regarding our staff and location. It is never our intention to mislead our guests and are apologetic that you felt this way. We did recently purchase Casa Munras and in an effort to keep all of our guest rooms more consistent with design, layout, and amenities we offer we will begin room renovations this October to match our already updated lobby, restaurant, meeting rooms, and spa. Our restaurant does specialize in Spanish cuisine, but our restaurant is always happy to try to accommodate a specific food order. Thank you for your comments as they serve as our best opportunity to continually improve on accommodations and services we offer. Warmest Regards, Management of the Inns of Monterey
"Hotel was the best!!!!"
Everyone was great! Hotel was great...nice pool! Will stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
In heart of downtown, walking distance to all restaurants and nite clubs if you plan on drinking. Walking distance to pier . The only downside, still has old fashioned TV, so if you like flat screen reserve the rooms with flat screen TV, otherwise, an excellent hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"clean and warm atmosphere"
I stayed here one night for my birthday weekend. It is a beautiful hotel with beautiful restaurant and heated pool. Staff were extremely helpful and pleasant. My next stay here will be longer than one night.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Casa Munras Hotel & Spa Happy Birthday! We are so honored that you chose us as your birthday destination. We want to thank you for the kind comments about Esteban's. It is indeed a beautiful restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating to soak up our California weather. We hope to welcome you back for another amazing birthday weekend!

"Nice hotel, bad rooms!"
Very good location, walking distance to downtown, but the rooms are very small, and smelly.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Casa Munras Hotel & Spa I want to thank you for your review and the compliments regarding our location. However, I am disappointed to hear that your room had an odor. I want to assure you that our housekeeping department thoroughly cleans all of our rooms and am sincerely sorry that you had to encounter this, as it is not typical. In regard to room size, we do offer several different room types that do vary in size and hope that we can find the perfect accommodation for you during your next stay. Warmest Regards, Management of the Inns of Monterey

This hotel is very nice and well kept. The staff was friendly and the rooms were very comfortable. This is a great place to stay if you are visiting Monterey.Genuine Expedia guest review
"I love the location. Walking distance to attractio"
walls are too thin, you can hear neighbor. Cleaning crew starts working too early and make lots of noise. Location is perfect for people that enjoys walking and for those that don't either.Genuine Expedia guest review
have stayed several times in this hotel as it is very convenient to everything we want to do when on the Peninsula. The rooms are a bit dated but the beds are comfortable and there are plenty of towels available. The bathroom could use more counter storage space for makeup etc but enjoyed the cozy fire in the bar and wonderful wine selection.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Casa Munras, Monterey"
Good place for families. The restaurant on-site, Esteban, is a very good value for breakfasts, dinner, and happy hours. Good drinks and food.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
For the price, Casa Munras exceeded expectations. The staff is very professional and friendly. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the hotel is within easy walking distance of downtown and Fisherman's Wharf.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very uncomfortable - Time to renovate"
Time to get air conditioning. We stayed in April and the room was 85 degrees. The room was extremely small (smallest we've stayed in), the TV was from 15 years ago, no air conditioning. Time to renovate.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Looking forward to staying again!!!"
The staff is very friendly and helpful! The lobby sitting area has a fireplace and comfy couches and is inviting just to sit and relax. Restraunt is enjoyable with decent prices, again service excellent. Rooms perfect, beds heavenly clouds, pool and fitness room fine, spa great but a little pricey. Easy to walk to everything.

The hotel was very charming and the concierge, Nicholas was super friendly and helpful. We had a delicious dinner in the hotel restaurant, Esteban.

"Very nice classic motorlodge."
Very nice hotel and very good location for sightseeing Monterey. My son and I loved the old school motor lodge with the modern upgraded offices and courtyards. We had room 299 which was and upstairs double queen room. Outside was a wrap around balcony with tables and chairs. Large trees dotted the grounds so it felt outside of the urban area. The rooms […] were neat quiet and tidy and kept uptodate. My wife who travels for business at 5 star hotels was not as impressed but then these hotels cost 250-400 a night. The only down side was the balcony carpet was water stained. The neighborhood was not too bad. Close to restaurants and gas stations. But was with many large cities there were homeless about. Not many. For comparison downtown San deigo has homeless on every street. We had to leave for a family emergency at 3 am but the staff was very prompt. I would stay here again.

Room was small with no insulation from the other rooms. Did not sleep becouse the people nexted door talked all night. Sheet on the bed had not been cleaned and smelled of perfume. Bathroom had water spots on the floor and sink. Towels were old. I expected more or could have saved money with motel 6.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had an awesome stay, the staff & accommodations were fantastic!! We'll definitely book here again!! Enjoyed our spa experience 2!! Loved that we were w/in walking distance of so many fun spots!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Very noisy, it's difficult to rest."
We'll never come back again. Too noisy. Don't get a down stair room, it is even worse.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Casa Munras Hotel & Spa I want to thank you for taking the time to post this review. I want to apologize that you were not able to get a restful night sleep, which we hope to provide. In response, we do have plans to start renovations on our rooms this fall, which will include double pane windows and all new insulation. We sincerely hope that you will give us the opportunity to welcome you back in the future. Warmest Regards, Management of the Inns of Monterey
"Rooms need renovation..."
The clubhouse, restaurant, pool and overall grounds are quite nice but the rooms themselves need some major renovation. The pictures on Expedia are much nicer than what we actually experienced. PROS: (1) Free parking - The parking lot gets full fast though! (2) Free internet - My gadgets couldn't connect though - not enough signal (3) Restaurant, clubhouse, […] grounds and pool are updated and are quite pretty (4) Quick, easy check in/check out. Friendly staff. CONS: (1) Small bathroom with old fixtures - Toilet almost hits the door when you go into the bathroom, no light in the actual shower, poor water pressure, water stains in the toilet, etc, etc (2) Noisy - Thin walls and windows are not double paned. (3) No AC. Our room got hot at night, so we had to crank open the windows, which meant an even noisier night. Our window was literally 5 steps from the parking lot.

We didnt have a fantastic experience, but we didnt have a bad one eitheir. Hotel was pretty basic, expected more for $199 per night. Location is great, Highway 1 is about 5 mins away..Genuine Expedia guest review
Could not have asked for a better place to stay at the last minute. Beautiful, comfy, cozy - great location!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel with excellent location"
We only stayed for a day and a night this time. We arrived several hours before check in. Although we could not check in early, the staff did let us park there so that we could take a nice walk, do some sight seeing and shopping, and have a nice lunch at Turtle Bay. We also had a nice dinner at a restaurant called Turn 12. There is a Pete's Coffee very […] close by if you want something quick and light for breakfast as well as a Denny's across the street. The hotel has its own nice restaurant and an outdoor fire pit which is nice in the evenings. For the price that we got on Expedia, we would happily return to Casa Munras.

"old and dumpy unit"
Carpet was old and dirty. There was zero shower pressure. It was like someone dumping a cup of water over your head. I was unable to completley rinse the shampoo and conditioner from my hair and ended up with a skin rash on my neck and head. There was no air conditioner, which is fine but when I opened the window for air, people smoking below the window […] caused the smoke to come into my room. When I would close the window at night, I could still here the loud conversations from the people around the pool. The place was just really old and needs to be remodeled.

"Don't trust the hotel staff"
I was bringing my pregnant wife to Monterey for the first time & I booked this hotel. I asked for a quiet room because my pregnant wife already has a difficult time sleeping. So the guy gives us this room. At the crack of dawn the next morning it sounds like a full on construction site outside our room. Also the creamer for the coffee was expired. So […] anyways we went to talk to the hotel staff about the accommodations & lack of a quiet room. So this guy Bob acts like he is sorry, tells us he will switch our rooms & gave us $20 for breakfast at the restaurant. While waiting for breakfast my wife is talking to another staff person, Cynthia. She hears the story & tells my wife that is unacceptable & will upgrade us to a king. So we have breakfast & come back, & Cynthia explains that Bob will have to help us. Bob goes on to say that he is sorry but all the king rooms are booked up. So I go online & book a king, & sure enough they are available. Why lie to me Bob? If you don't want to upgrade me then fine, say that. But don't lie to me. So then we talk to the Manager Jennifer. She says the same thing about how they are all booked up. I ask how am I able to book one online then? She says it must be some glitch in their website. I tell her not to lie to me. She says she promises that she is not lying. So she says, let me see what I can do. 15 minutes later she magically has a room available. Bottom line - Bob & Jennifer are liars & Cynthia is nice & cares about the customer Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Not bad, but overrated"
We liked the hotel location and the surroundings. The neighborhood felt pretty save and there are plenty of places where you could have to go to eat. However, a lot of breakfast places open quite late for breakfast. On the way to the Fisherman Warf there are plenty other places to get something to eat in the morning. We went for a Happy Hour at the […] hotel's restaurant and really enjoyed their service and pintxos. When we came for dinner two days later my wife was happy with her golden beets salad, but we were disappointed with Paella del Mar. The price for a Margarita was $12 (top shelve tequila $15). I think even for the restaurant it’s too much. The rest of the menu has moderate prices. The swimming pool area looked clean and well taking care of. There were some people and kids enjoying sunbathing and swimming in there. We came a little earlier than check-in time and were pleased to be able to choose the room in one of the buildings at the second floor. The sound insulation could be much better, because we could here when some was flushing the toilet or taking shower, or simply sounds of running water early in the morning. In addition, the room felt pretty small. We were told that the bathroom was currently remodeled, but it looked pretty much dated as the rest of the room. It felt like your regular motel at $45-$65/night, not at special of $109. At the same time the main building, where the front desk and restaurants are located, looked very nice, upgraded and comfortable. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We would definitely recommend this motel to anyone going to the Monterey, Carmel area. It's in a good location unless you desire a view. Very clean ample rooms. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. A great place to spend an extra night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
OK overall, but somewhat dissapointed. I was only here one night for a conference in town. My needs in a hotel are a good bed, good shower/ bath, access to ice or water, and a microwave to heat up my coffee. This place is beautiful. It's nicely laid out with adequate parking, and if I was staying longer, I probably would have used the pool and fitness […] room. There was an ice machine right outside the door (traveling trick-I fill up my ice bucket at night, then it's great for making your morning coffee) However, my disappointment came with the shower. Basic showerhead good for a shower, but I have lots of hair and need either great water pressure or one of those hand held shower heads so I can really rinse it. This didn't work. They had a coffee maker in the room, but no microwave where I could heat up the old. I could have made more, but didn't want to make a whole pot for one cup. That being said, No.1 need is a good bed, and this was very good. Firm but very cushioned as well so it was very comfortable. I was well rested and could get back to my conference. Oh, and if you go to sleep before 10pm, don't get the room next to the fitness center. Machine noise does come through the walls. Not horrible, but a low thumpeta-thumpeta-thump from I'm guessing the treadmills. The staff was extremely nice, and if I had more time to interact, I'm sure they could have addressed all of this, but such is the life of business travel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
